James Brunozzi is retiring after 36 years in borough politics.

“For a year and a half the borough officials worked hard, having numerous meetings to make sure the community was heard. This was one of the biggest projects that the borough was involved in.

Being a borough official takes up a lot your time.” His message to the community is one of gratitude. “I’d like to thank all the borough officials and everyone I worked with — there are many — through the past 36 years,” he said. “I enjoyed it very much. As the sign says, ‘Jessup: a nice place to visit, a better place to live.’ ”

More Resolutions for a Healthier Spine Spinal health has a huge influence on your overall health, perhaps we could all stand to set a few spinal resolutions. If you have been living with chronic back, neck or nerve pain why not make an appointment for a visit to see if Chiropractic could give you relief? Instead of making this a resolution, just pick up the phone now and call 343-PAIN and make an appointment. Chiropractic adjustments improve overall health because they enhance the functioning of the nervous system. You can think about your nervous system as the bodys highway. If the nervous system is not functioning well, you will have pain and other symptoms like numbness, spasm and decreased motion. As a Chiropractor, I correct misalignments that may put painful pressure on spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments create more space in the spine and joints, relieving pain and improving mobility. And, a persons overall health typically improves with consistent chiropractic adjustments.

570.209.7440 | 14 THE VALLEY ADVANTAGE

JANUARY 12, 2018



Each year Valley Bowling Lanes in Childs hosts a fundraiser to help children in the area who are in need for Christmas. Valley Bowling Lanes has been holding toy drives for the past nine Christmases. Cindy Dragwa, manager of Valley Bowling Lanes and

Champions Lounge, started with only four children and has grown this fundraiser to help 18 children in the Jermyn and Mayfield area. Every year she plans on helping more; their goal for next Christmas season is 20 children. Gifts generated through this fundraiser provide the recipients with winter coats, hats, gloves, full stockings, pajamas, outfits and toys that match the childrens’ Christmas wishes. Officials say a toy drive of this magnitude would not be possible without the outpouring of support the group receives from participating bowlers in all leagues at Valley Lanes, as well as patrons of Champions Lounge.
